KELLACKEY MAY BE
TAKEN FROM BOISE
Albany, N. Y., Club Has Prior Claim
to His Services, and Honest
John May Lose Out.
THERE Is a possibility that Hugh
Kcllackey, the ex-Elder who was
recently signed to catch for the
Boise team, may not be allowed
to play with that aggregation after all.
Albany, N. Y., has a prior claim upon
his services, according to Secretary
Farrell of the National association, and
it is quite probable that the big Canuclc
will be taken from the Boise ranks.
Shortly before Kellackey was released
by the Salt Lake club. President Lucas
served notice upon the directors that
Kellackey was claimed by the Albany
club and that Secretary "Farrell had
approved the claim. Thiw was one rea
son why Kellackey wns turned, loose.
Now that Boise has secured tho Ca
nadian, the matter seems to have been
completely forgotten. Tho claim of thn
Albany club, however, still holds good
and Kellackey may be called home at

batlimr uniform of late and has hit
almost everything that came his way.
Dad Clark has also been hitting some,
landing three two-baggers in Friday'a
game at Butte.
Butte fans are out with a big roar
because of the weakness of their team.
Wilraot has promised" better work and
still insists that he has the strongest

Thirty-seven thousand persons wit
nessed the ball game at New York yes
terday afternoon. This Is the largest
attendance in the history of the game.
The game was between New York and
Cincinnati, eleven innings to a tic.
Fans who kick on tho quality of
baseball handed out in the Pacific Na
tional league will have to side-step
when they arc confronted with Fri
day's game at Spokane. Eleven in
nings, with a score of 2-1 is as goefd
and better than many of the big league
teams can boast of.
Next Tuesday our own dear Elders
will be seen at "Walker's. The Boise
Babes will also be here and with good
weather some fast baseball should be

many, the Saints did hotter while away

On the ove of battle tho following
note was dispatched to Capt, Donohuo
of the Elks by J. C. Hooper, commander-in-chief
of the C. C. tribe:
P. J. Donohuo, Chairman Elks Base
ball Team Sir: I had hoped that tho
gamo of ball between my team and
your gang of roosters could be pulled
off In a spirit of friendly and scientific
rivalry.. It seems from the tone ;of
your various communications that you
do not share my laudable desire, but
are determined to precipitate war.
This afternoon, as our gentlemanly
pitcher was coming out of a respect
able resort, with his can of beer, ho
was set upon by one of your thugs and
had his right arm broken. Fortunate
ly he always pitches with his left hand
and thus you were again foiled. I am
just in. receipt of a communication
from our catcher, stating that late this
afternoon he was struck in tho face
with an oaken bat In the hands of your
exalted ruler. It will doubtless make
you grit your teeth to learn that tho
bat was broken into many pieces and
our catcher will be on hand tomorrow
at 3 p. m. with the goods. Your at
tempt to bribe our first baseman to
throw the game has also come to
naught," we having raised the amount
offered by you. I here and now offer a
reward of five dollars .for each ball
